Title Financing International Travel
Organisation Leeds University - Paul Davy
The University of Leeds has 32,000 students and 7,000 staff. Paul Davy works in the International Travel Department as a Finance Officer. Financing International travel involves using University money, the individual’s money (usually via credit cards) and then settling up who owes who by collecting receipts and using the appropriate currency exchange rates.  The necessary information is presented in a well-structured table. This becomes particularly important when the trip involves a visit to several countries using several different currencies. The task involves using a spreadsheet to present data, using exchange rate formulae, decimals, fractions and calculation.
